Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation 115 Ivory Review, Swatches, Price & Buy Online India

Hello loved ones,

I got my hands on the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation in shade 115 Ivory but I waited for the summers to arrive in Delhi to test it’s matte claim. And after using it for over a month in this heat and humid rainy weather, now I feel I can share my review with you. Keep reading to know my thoughts.

Shades

Available in 6 shades:- Ivory, Medium Beige, Natural Buff, Sun Beige, Toast, Toffee. But considering the fact that they launched 24 shades in US, 6 shades is less to cover all Indian skin shades. I got the shade 115 Ivory, I am somewhere between 128 Warm Nude and 115 Ivory, I tried both shades, Ivory seemed to suit my skin tone better.

Price: Rs 525 for 30ml

Packaging

Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation comes in a rectangular glass bottle with a black plastic screw cap. Though the bottle feels sturdy, but I am not sure if it’s travel friendly. It has a wide neck, doesn’t come with pump which helps in easy & controlled dispense of the product. The wide rim leads to product wastage.

Texture

The foundation is slightly thick in texture. Since I have dry-combination skin, it makes blending a bit tedious, though it can be taken care of by applying it directly to face in dots. I feel it will be bit drying for dry-skinned beauties, I needed to apply a generous amount of moisturizer before applying the foundation. I once made a mistake of applying it over a matte sun-screen, it gave the most patchiest finish ever! Anyway, it was my fault, dry-combination skin + matte sun-screen + matte foundation, what was I even thinking?

Being the lazy me, I have tried blending it with fingers as well, worked smoothly. It gives the best finish when applied with a foundation brush or beauty sponge. Texture-wise I feel it’s the best foundation for combination & oily skinned beauties in affordable category.

Coverage

This Maybelline foundation gives a light to medium coverage but is breathable. You get an evened-out healthy finish but it won’t completely hide your blemishes. I recently had a acne breakout, I did require a concealer along with this foundation to hide the scars. It looks very natural under every light settings and didn’t give any ghastly look under flash.

Staying Power

During winters, it stayed on me for good 7-8 hours. However, during the humid summers it stayed on me for 5 hours with mild touch up on my T-zone area, which is pretty great for a drugstore brand. It will work as a great summer foundation for combination & oily skin. It’s a good buy for college/office-going girls who require a daily wear foundation.

I have acne-prone skin and it didn’t cause me any breakouts. It’s safe for sensitive skinned girls but I still would suggest to do a patch test first.

  1. Hey Ankita . Nicely reviewed product.I have not tried the Fit Me range but after reading so many good reviews I am going to pick up.I loved your review . Maybelline has been flooding the Indian markets with new launches,waiting for the Age Rewind Concealers to launch.☺

  2. Hey I have recently tried warm nude shade it’s looks good once I apply but after 5-10 min it’s not my skin ..I am warm tone fair girl..should I go for ivory? Are you warm tone or cool or neutral?

    • Hi Meghal, usually some foundation oxidize, I found similar issue with L’Oreal Infallible though I love it but it does the same stint. I think Ivory might be bit light for you, so what you can do is mix both shades, ivory and warm nude to get your shade. I was on neutral side but now I have tanned a lot cos’ of reckless traveling so now I too am warm tone and the ivory shade is light for me now. Hope it helped you, feel free to reach me if it doesn’t work.
